    I've been trying to convince my girlfriend that our eventual kids should have some unique names. Unfortunately for her, my idea of unique comes from celtic and norse mythology. For example, girls' names: Brynwyn Maeve Brunhild Freyya Aoife Siobhan ...And for boys: Sinfjötli Konáll Sigurd Gunnar I also forgot Sigurd Hjort Maybe I'll make one of them a III and name him after me. I figure one of several thing will happen. 1) My kids will get beat up and be weakings. 2) My kids will get beat up and live up to their celtic/viking names and become tough as nails 3) My kids will be so resentful and angry that they will kill me in my sleep 4) My kids and (then) wife will leave me.

    If 2 and 3 occurred, it'd be completely in line with the celtic/norse lineage, so I guess I couldn't complain about a little patricide. I had considered Loki, but it (and Thor) has been done to death by comics. Also, reading Gaiman's American Gods kind of killed the mystique of that name, due to it's overall cheeseballism.

    At least it is a no-brainer what the kid names his penis.

    Its gotta be Boss Hogg


    How about Ralph Lifshitz (aka Ralph Lauren)?


    I have lived with a nickname since I was 2 months old. Given name is William (a Jr. after my father), but when he returned from the Vietnam war shortly after my birth, he started calling me "Spiffy." Luckily, the "y" was dropped before entering school. I have been known as Spiff pretty much all my life. I tell people who ask that I learned to fight young... but actually, never had a problem with it.

    * Edited to add a disclaimer: I see that there is a "mt_spiffy" member here... no relation, and no one other than my wife mounts me...

    We met this guy, sort of a new-agey LA type film director who had named his young son Towaddy (sp?).

    I asked a few times to get it right and he was very firm about telling me it means "Screaming Eagle" or something in Native American.

    My wife has been cracking up about it ever since. She says "I don't care what it means, you named your son Twatty."
